And while bunk beds are practical, let`s face it - sleeping in a bunk bed with a friend is one of the true joys that a child can experience. From calling out who`s got the top bunk to climbing up the ladder to telling stories to imaging your bunk bed is anything you want it to be, bunk beds, for many children and their families, are gathering spots and places to create fun and long-lasting memories.
But there`s also good reasons why parents love bunk beds too. It`s quite possible to house 2 kids in one small bedroom if you use bunks for the kids, and it doesn`t take up any more space than one single bed. So if you`ve got more kids than bedrooms buy a bunk bed instead of a new house, it`s way cheaper. And the kids will love it too, rather than complain as they would if you tried to squeeze a second bed into a small bedroom.
This said, although the basic concept has stayed the same, the range of colours, materials and design details has altered quite a lot over the last few years. Gone are the days when bunk beds were plain pine or tubular metal, they are now available in a variety of materials and colour options to suit most schemes and budgets.
Today`s bunk beds come in all different shapes and sizes, and are manufactured and made from many different materials, including oak wood, cherry wood and maple wood. Additionally, bunk beds are also available in many different and varying styles, such as a twin over full bunk bed. It`s these advances in bunk bed design and construction that make bunk beds more desirable than ever.
